About Elaine Edington

We first came to live in Puerto Vallarta in 2004 and bought a townhouse in the Marina area, where we lived for six months of the year. Shortly thereafter, we realized that we wanted to be downtown in the heart of everything so we sold the townhouse and bought this house. We are so happy with our decision.

Elaine Edington purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Elaine Edington chose Colonia 5 de Diciembre

Oh my goodness, the question has to be why not!!! You can do everything from this location, or you can do nothing at all! The suite is comfortable, extremely clean and well maintained. It has its own access in and out from the rest of the main house and because we live on-site, everything will be taken care of.

What makes this apartment unique

We, the owners, will be here to check you in and out. If there is something you need, we can help you obtain it. If there are any problems with the unit, they will be resolved quickly. This is a single apartment at the side of the main house with its own private access. In-house fishing and sightseeing charters available on our private boat. Use of the upper levels of the house is included.

Everything was splendid. The owners live on site and were more than willing to help us enjoy our stay. We were right in El Centro - a short walk to stores, buses, taxis, markets, great restaurants, El Malecon... Sometimes we just hung out in our beautiful apartment, soaking up the beautiful view of the bay. The upstairs areas are an amazing bonus where we barbecued, sat in the pool and lounged with a good book or soaked in the gorgeous vista of the bay. We cannot say enough good things about this place. We loved this property!

Our week in the middle of Puerto Vallarta was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We opted to stay in the downtown area instead of the beach and are glad we did! This place was wonderful and the owners were there to help us with everything. The refrigerator was stocked with beer, wine and water. The place was home away from home. We will try to do this again. Thank you Elaine, Rick and your staff.

Rick and Elaine are wonderful hosts. The property itself is beautiful. So close to the malecon allows us to walk to most places.

Another Great Time in El Centro

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this property and again we truly enjoyed the experience. We have some friends close by so this is an easy walk back and forth to their condo. My wife and I enjoy the many different spaces to enjoy the beautiful weather and view. Personally, the 5th floor kitchen area makes the trip for me. A fully furnished kitchen with quality kitchenware and grill makes cooking outside great fun. Rick and Elaine (owners) are fabulous. On a couple occasions, we had friends over for dinner or a swim and never had a problem. They work hard to truly share their residence without being in the way.

First Class all the way: new, impeccably clean, and wonderfully close to everything.

Elaine and Rick have done wonders with this property. It has all the charm of the area with the several overlooks of the city and the outside-living options. It also has every convenience of an upscale apartment unit, including AC, a dishwasher, and pretty decent WiFi. Your hosts are more than accommodating. Since they live in PV, they know the city. We enjoyed our two weeks thoroughly and have signed on for a return visit. No doubts with this unit. Great value. I would recommend this unit with no ah-but's. The views of the city and beautiful Bandaras Bay alone are worth the price.

Great People- Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Casa Destino (Andromeda Casa) was a fantastic experience. Though the streets are steep, the people in the area are all very cordial and seem to welcome Americans in the community. Speaking of cordial, owners Elaine and Rick who live on premises understand what vacationers want. They are helpful, kind and most gracious using things around the condo. The condo itself is extremely clean, beds were excellent and the fact that tap water is good to drink is a big plus. The upstairs space with pool and kitchen area was our favorite place to hangout on the warm PV days and nights. There are so many positive things to say about this property!

Car: not necessary

Three blocks from the boardwalk (malecon). Close to everything you could ever want. It is a perfect location for whatever you want to do.
